OUR CATHOLIC HOLD SWAY When Socialism Fails in Austria Cardinal Piffl Wins With Religious Revival. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Vienna, May 25.A new spiritual life, springing up amid the hunger and starvation of Vienna, has enabled the Catholics here to hold their ground in the present tribulation of their country and has brought about a transformation in favor of the Catho- lic cause which is expeoted to show itself in the next elections. The trials which the Catholics have bulk of the Catholic people are united, was thrust into the backgrond by the Social Democrats, have been many. Daily the radical socialist orators and papers threatened the confisca- tion of church property and the ban- ishment of religious instruction from the schools. The life of the cardinal archbishop was jeopardized; the papal nuncio was publicly reviled during di- vine service. Sermons deemed sus- picious by the Social Democrats were suppressed with brute force. The forest estates of several monasteries were plundered. At Innsbruck the rabble invaded the time-honored col- lege of the Jesuits and ravaged the monastery like vandals. The con- ventuals of the Viennese monasteries and convents were for a long time daily prepared for flight. But when the great reform of So- cialization so uproariously proclaimed proved to be a dead failure and when the promised heaven of heavens re- vealed itself as so many hells with higher prices, bad management of production, decay of justice and of public morals as its visible signs, the reaction came rapidly. Organization of Catholic bodies to encounter the threatening perils was inaugurated with energetic speed. Of the 6,000,000 people who comprise actual :Austria, 300,000 have been united in Catholic farmers' unions, with the support of a vigorous Catho- lic press. In Upper Austria, with 1,000,000 inhabitants, more than 47,000 women were enrolled in the Catholic Women's Organization, while in Vienna the Catholic Women's Or- ganization has driven the Socialistic female organization to the wall and today stands at the head of the pub- lic institutions of charity.

C News Semice) Rome, May 27.--I tis related that the Cure of a parish church in Paris, famous for the number of fashionable people that get married there, put up a notice that he regretted to see that so many of his parishioners were so hard hit by the bad times that they cvuld not afford to buy more than half a frock to get married in. He had, therefore, bought a large white shawl with which, during the marriage ceremony, they could covet" the part of them that th dress left uncovered. Conditions Really Serious. This, as a story simply, is light comedy, but the seriousness of the fact is witnessed to by numerous pastorals of Bishops and warnings of priests reproving the indecencies of the prevailing fashions Some time ago there was a warning from the Chair of Peter itself on this subject and, with the charity that always emanates thence, it bore witness to the fact that nine-tenths of the women ENGLAND LRES MAID OF ORLEANS Westminster Cathedral Scene of Im- pressive Ceremonies. (N. C. W. C. Special Cable.) London, May 17.--Westminster Cathedral was the scene of impressive ceremonies yesterday in honor of France's new saint, Joan of Arc. Catholics from all parts of England participated in the demonstration, for i which a special altar in honor of the i new saint had been erected; and th shrine of the saint, the center of wich is a splendid Italian mosaic depicting the Maid of Orleans in full armour, was fittingly decorated. Pontificial High Mass was cele- brated by Msgr. Butt, Bishop of Cambysopolis and Auxiliary to the Cardinal Archbishop of Weminster. The French Ambassador with his full suite attended the ceremonies in state, and ambassadors from o*her Catholic nations were also present. One of the features of the day was a pageant and open air procession or- ganized by the Catholic Women's League, in which different groups rep- wlo wore unnice things did so purely resented different incidents in the life through ignorance, incapacity or[of the saint. The procession started thoughtlessness. And ladies' experi- from the Cathedral and passed through ence endorses the Holy Father's charity. There is not one woman in a hundred, or in a thousand perhaps, who knows bow to make a frock or how a frock should be made. She goes to a good place and is practically bound to take what they have to sell her. :And that thing, unfortunately, just now, is not nice. The reason, ac- cording to one who is acquainted with conditions in @our EuYopean counta'ies, is that fashions are originated for, and sometimes by, the deml-monde. S Succinctly, these are the fact. et there is a remedy; an easy one. It is to be seen in Rome. The Remedy. Twenty-one years ago an initiative was started in Tu,'in by three Italian ladies, sisters, of very good family and excellent Catholics. When the idea came to them they were d.ing nothing more than holding catechism classes for a certain number of girls. They wished to do something more for the girls and they started, first of course on quite small lines, a dress- making establishment. They put all their work into it and it grew. Now tbe.v have tw.o houses in Turin, one in Genoa, one here in Rome. The number of girls they employ in Turin runs well into three figures; here nearby streets. Notable among those in the line of'march were the nuns, with the children in their care, from French convents. At the conclusion of the precession, which was held n the late afternoon, there we two) services in honor of the new saint. Rev. James Goggin, delivered a panegyric on the saint in the Cathedral, and to accommodate the vast crowds that could not gain 9n- trance into the big edifice, special services were hehl on the Cathedral grounds with Rev.

They make frocks here for their clients in the very latest fashion, with workmanship as good as any to be found, only the frocks are shorn of everything that is not nice. Ob- viously it is easy for an expert to do this: to make a nice frock fully as good and as fashionable as the an- nice ones that the other crowd force on their customers. And that is just what i. done in the Roman atelier that I have seen The mall clientele first secured at Turin grew so that the business ould be extended to Rome and Genoa. Ladies of the Queen's court patronize it here, the Queen Mother buys frocks from it; ladies o the Catholic and, if not necessarily Catholic, of the well-thlnking aris- tocracy find that to be dressed de- cently they need not wear badly and unfashionably made clothes. The profits made go to extend the business Before the convention which he pro- poses, Mr. Rorke says, he would place this thought: "You cannot legislate goodness into men; you cannot make a liberal,st," capitalist or a revolutionary Socialist a good citizen by law, but you can go a great distance toward a solution of the social problem by renewing and propagating the sentiments that ann mated those who drafted the Consti- tution of the United States." Christian sociologists have for many years been urging religious educa- tion as a means of condlcting the revolutionary teachings .which Mr. Rorke condemns. In the recent pas- toral letter of the Archbishops and Bishops of the United States the cus- tomary Catholic emphasis was laid on this sort of education. the work is good.

St. Francis de Sales wisely points out that there are two classes who ought to receive Holy Communion fre- quently: the perfect and the imper- fect. was the duty of such as were n': fighting to raise their hands in prayer to Heaven. In the course of a night adoration at Montmartre, the dele-. gates of the National Union of Catho lic Agriculturists promised a national pilgrimage of thanksgiving when vic- tory had assured peace. In his appeal the President of the Union recalls 'the fact that of all classes of people in France it is the rural class that has made in' the war the greast sacrifices, about one mil- lion men of that class having been killed and about as many mutilated or so disabled as to be rendered unfit fdr tilling the soil.  And yet that is clothing and medicines. The people of Austria and Hungary will be informed of this American undertaking for the return of their compatriots and will be given an op- portunity t) contribute to the fund, but the situation 'in hoth countries is so wretched that they are expected t be able to give very little.
